forgotten what 9/11 was about? >> i think from the beginning of the obama administration has attempted to close guantanamo bay. as you remember they attempted with the prison in thompson, illinois to close guantanamo and move the detainees there. it ended up with opposition from the senate and the houses. this vote as you pointed out 50-41. they have released this government accountability report in order to build additional support for their effort to close guantanamo. people are saying these are not intelligence analysts that are releasing this report. the think the memory of 9/11 is still fresh enough. khalid shaikh mohammed and people like this who have been so explicit in terms of what they would like to do to the united states, i think those memories are still well enough understood by the american public that there is going to be continued opposition to the administration's attempts here, regardless of their efforts to build support in the senate. >> harris: i wanted to ask you about thompson, illinois. 2009 to retrofit to host military trials, house up to 100 terror suspects. a

forces? >> i think the obama administration needs to make a big decision. do you confer recognition on national council as legitimate authority of the syrian people. the reason for doing this, they need to push assad out as quickly as possible. he's holding on, and if something doesn't change in this equilibrium he may hold on for months on end. this war could spread in lebanon, jordan, iraq, that's not in the interest of the united states. they need to reinforce this coalition. that's one reason. the other is one of self interest. it's likely that at some point assad is going to fall. this particular group or some element of it will take over as the government of syria. we should want to have influence there given the importance of syria, and the importance of syria to iran. because if we can separate a new syrian government from the iranians that would be a major strategic advantage to the united states. >> eliot: michael, it certainly does seem that the trendline is not favorable to assad, that's good news. but is this another instance where we've been leading from behind, where

the obama administration to push them into it. >> is this a game changer in the mideast? how does this affect things, this new u.n. status? >> i'm not sure it's a game changer. because the palestinians still don't have their own country, and their own borders, and their own security and so forth. >> but the fact that they're identified as a state now. i mean, we constantly talk about a two-state solution. >> right. >> living side by side in peace. the u.n. says granted they're nonvoting, they're observer, but they are a state. >> exactly. >> i mean is that, that whole number of votes that supported that. doesn't it make a huge statement? >> it makes a statement symbolically, because they're not really a state in practice, because they don't really control every inch of their territory for obvious reasons. but, it's -- it makes a difference for them, because they feel then they can negotiate with israel state to state. not that they really can. but it's a big prestige thing for them, more symbolic than practical. >> what about israel's discussion about these 3,000 housing units tha

it seems like the obama administration can sail through senator kerry, so, it looks like she's going to be left on the sidelines. as far as the best week, it's those republicans who want to govern and that they're not going to sign the special interest tax pledge from grover norquist. so, i give them a lot of mrauz f for doing the right thing. >> thank you for joining me, as always. i appreciate that. >>> that is a wrap of this "weekend with alex witt." up next my friend craig melamvi. i'm alex witt, have yourselves a great day. nk you need to go to a department store counter to treat your toughest skin concerns? join the counter revolution and switch to olay pro-x to see results in 28 days. anti-aging results so you look up to 12 years younger. reduce the look of pores and fight red acne for clearer skin get cleansing results as effective as a $200 system no matter what your skincare issues you'll see results in 28 days guaranteed join the counter revolution with potent, professional, pro-x. you'll also care about our new offer. you get access to nurses who can help with your questi

? >> the obama administration is now changing the definition of poverty so that a family of four with health insurance in new york city can be poor in 39,000. in oakland 33,000. but the reality is the reality is for years huge gap between what americans think when he hears poverty and east coast the old way that the government defined it when you see the mainstream media running a story on poverty saying they are 49 million poor people. they will feature a homeless family but only about 2% of the poor are homeless. in fact, the average poor american lives in a house or apartment that is larger than the average nonpoor french men, german or englishman. 80% of under the old definition had airconditioning. two thirds cable tv. half of them have a computer. a third of them have a wide screen hdtv. a quarter of them have a tivo. if you have them was anyone in your family hungry at any -- for even a single day during the last year? the overwhelming majority will say no. they have access to medical care. they have no hardship whatsoever. there is a complete disconnect between the way the government

with the administration. third, republicans need to shine a bright light on the obama proposal to ensure the american people know how insane and ludicrous this is. fourth, republicans need to use the opportunity to pass their own agenda they need to show they are not obstructionists they themselves have a positive, forward-looking agenda they are proud of, eager to take to the country. republicans need to make the case morning, noon and night, that it is obama who seems absolutely determined, for political reasons, to take the country over the fiscal cliff. our first guest is author of victory at yorktown live in virginia as part of his american legacy tour, former presidential candidate, newt gingrich. welcome back. >> good to be with us. interesting times. sean you have a smile on your face. >> sure. >> sean: a lot of our tpraepbs are not happy about in. >> un reasons i write historical fiction is to remind people that sometimes freedom is difficult, crossing the delaware christmas night in a snow storm was difficult. marching nine miles with a third of the army wearing burlap bags because they had

of the lessons that the president learned early on during the first part of his administration is i think somebody else in the "washington post" might have said it when they said he's not going to negotiate with himself any longer. the nicer gentler barak obama who did closed-door negotiations who was always greeted by members of congress with obstructionism that is gone with the majority of americans voting for him. he came out and said give me a proposal. if you want to limit tax deductions, tell me what it is you want to limit. if you want to reduce entitlements, tell me how we're going to do that. if we're going to raise taxes or cut spending, tell me how we're going to do this because i've got the american public on my side. >> jennifer: i totally agree with that. i hear he's not cutting enough in this proposal, but in the last campaign he was cutting too much, oh my god. shouldn't the republicans in congress be called out on that hypocrisy, at least by the main treatment media? >> one of the things that think they're going to be cognitive of, they don't have time to change their ima
